    We had cocktails, starters and entrees. The meatballs, salad and calamari were delicious as were the pastas. Only disappointment was that the margarita pizza was swimming in tomato sauce( instead of sliced tomatoes), few slivers of buffalo mozz and some basil.

    The bread, olive oil and ricotta cheese plate was great. The four lamb, pine nut, raisin and spices in tomato and cheese sauce meatballs were delicious. Service was attentive and top-notch. Food was served hot.

    We went with two other couples who'd never been before. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the food!! They accommodated a reservation change without issue! It was a bit noisy, and the long table made it hard to hear a little, but still a fantastic time!!

    Worst, most pretentious dining experience ever! The food was disgusting. I literally had trouble cutting through the Pork M with a knife to find undressed arugula beneath. The "Roasted Potatoes" were literally unseasoned French fries - and cold at that. We literally pushed the plate aside. The service was the worst. The reception person literally did not speak a word to us upon entering. The server didn't greet us. She simply said, "Wanna order?" That was it for the entire night. I hated everything about the place. Clearly, some wanna-be restauranteur opened up the place. What a waste of money. Dining out should be a lovely, engaging experience. I was so embarrassed. We were not greeted or appreciated at all. I love spending money on a lovely meal/experience. In this case, I want my money back. And, BTW, the wait staff all looked horrible in their own street clothes. Clearly, the owner thought that would be clever, modern and chic. It was not. It was insulting and common. I will tell everyone I know about my experience.

    Good Orchiette. Pleasant waitress. Girl that seated us looked like she’d rather be any other place in the world but at the restaurant. It was Saturday night, so the noise level was high. Overall a good experience despite the noise which was predictable and the seater’s lack of enthusiasm. Would go back! Plan to try the pizza next time!

    Receptionist - zero personality, doesn't know you and that you are a continued return customer. Poorly dressed - jeans & t shirt (I blame owners for this) , waiter (we've had him before - not very friendly, with an attitude. Didn't keep an eye on our table. Duck Ragu - satisfying - had it a few times, stuffed shells - gummy , without much sauce. Small portion. Fennel pizza - tasty. Appetizer - Charcuterie - Salumi - not enough bread, only about 5 olives, meat fine. Wish they would let you combine with cheese. But they won't. They need to change up the menu - same for so long - bring back the risotto balls, I love whole branzino - especially at Edo Squid in Richmond - Fortunato's w the oliveade just doesn't taste right Wine - Sangiovese should be in the $35. range - not $44. Dessert - Tiramisu cup overpriced at $11 should be $7-$8, I don't know of any dessert in Roanoke at $11. I've always liked the vibe of the place - but there is always a hitch with the staff and meal. But I'm a life long restaurant bon vivant, former NY restaurant guide editor, Cordon Bleu Paris trained chef and longtime caterer, from a 50 year family owned restaurant in Northern NY - my hobby is restaurants - I'm pickier than most!

    Scarlett did an amazing job… Especially for a very busy night in the restaurant! Excellent bucatini and orecchiette!! Got the cannolis to go and they were a fantastic treat with some decaf at home… Love the team at this place- Trevor came by and helped out and JP gave us some of his valuable time… Congrats :-)

    Absolutely wonderful experience. The wait staff is outstanding, the atmosphere warm and inviting, and the food selections fabulous. We had the Duck Ragu Pasta dishes, the Branzino fish and a Bianca pizza with mushrooms and prosciutto. All were sooooo good. They make great cocktails too. Absolutely one of our favorites in Roanoke.

    We came up for a weekend trip and despite hurricane Ian trying to stop most of our plans, we are so glad we kept our reservation here. From the second we walked on, the service was some of the best I have had at a restaurant. We started with the most beautiful calamari I have ever seen and follow it up with two salads. The kale salad was phenomenal. Our main course was the duck ragu (WOWW), and the bucatini. Our dishes were not only played gorgeously, but they also tasted so amazing and fresh. Would highly recommended coming and can not wait to be back in town to dine in again!

    We loved eating at Fortunado! We have conflicting wine tastes (sweet vs dry), and the sommelier took care of us and found us a wine that we BOTH loved! Our waitress Scarlett was incredible and had great menu recommendations for entrees and desserts. The ambiance was excellent - very romantic for our night out :) Check it out if you haven't already been!!!

    My wife and I tend to come here a lot and we go back-and-forth between Pizza nights and Full Dinner nights. This visit was a Pizza night but, the service was just as exceptional, the wait staff just as professional and attentive, and the food just as outstanding as it is when we do Full Dinner nights! Plus, we split a dessert (which never happens)! Overall, a great experience as we have come to expect - we will be back soon!

    Absolutely delish! House bread is amazing. The calamari was the best I have ever eaten. The duck ragu cannot be topped it so rich and comforting. My mom enjoyed her stuffed shells and the peach semi-fredo. Great choice of cocktails and an extensive wine menu. Staff was super friendly. We will be back over and over and over again!

    The service at Fortunatos is always great This time the food was average. I had the risotto and it was very bland. Two of our guest got the Branzino and it oddly came in a bowl, vs a plate with nowhere to put the bone and head that the guests had to remove. Just a little odd. They also serve room temperature water and you must pay for bread. So while the food it good, side items are very small and the bill adds up very quickly. It was also extremely loud, such that I struggled to hear our waiter standing right next to our table.
